The Potawatomi had been living in Illinois but moved west following the Treaty of Chicago. Billy Caldwell, also known as Chief Sauganash, led around 1500 Potawatomie to Council Bluffs.
Author Susan Kelsey will tell the tale of that trek and describe the ten years the tribe lived in the county that bears their name. Admission is free to members of the Historical Society of Pottawattamie County. Nonmembers are welcome to attend for a $5 admission fee.More Information
